What a story. For a while, label boss Jeff Konkel had been trying to persue this man to record an album. No chance. He was afraid of egative reactions from his church congregation. To them, the blues still is the devil's music. Finally he agreed to record, provided he could use an alias. Furthermore, all the participating folks would have to sign a contract. No news about his real name and whereabouts should be distributed during his lifetime. The music's pure Mississippi style, downhome blues. Dirty, rough, mean and honest. The real deal in the tradition of James Son Thomas, or R.L. Burnside. Very personnally recommended. THE MISSISSIPI MARVEL - electric & acoustic gtrs/voc, LIGHTNIN' MALCOLM - drums. Special guests: JIMMY 'DUCK' HOLMES - hca (1 track), BILL ABEL - gtr (1 track).
